The Witches of Halloween
One of the most well known characters of Halloween are evil witches. Its important to note that Halloween witches are not the same as witches of the Wiccan religion. Let's talk about Halloween witches........
In the sinister netherworld of Halloween, witches are indeed evil. Nah, this is just Halloween malarkey you say! On the contrary, witches are as real as you and me. To make matters worse, they exist in great numbers. Witches are living right among us. Nope, not your mother-in-law. Then again, she just might be. We are talking real, honest to goodness broom flying, cauldron brewing, and spell-casting witches.
Witches are well documented throughout history. The Salem Witch Trials of the 1800's are proof positive of their existence. They were proven to be witches in a court of law. Many of the accused, even admitted their guilt. Back then, if convicted, witches were hung. Learning from the experience of the Witch trials, witches have become much more crafty and reclusive. They have also learned to disguise the truth about themselves. A crafty witch is often pleasant looking, to outright beautiful, to disguise they're real being. With the added stealth, and a modern society that does not put witches on trial, their numbers are increasing at an alarming rate.
Hot News!! On November 1st, 2001, Salem, Massachusetts cleared 20 people of being witches. These people were convicted and executed for being witches during the infamous Salem Witch trials in the 1800's.
Did you know? Joan of Ark was condemned as a witch by the English and burned at the stake.
A witch can be described as nothing less than total, evil, and sinister, with a black, and un-remorseful heart. They scheme and plot the use of their sorcery and black magic. While witches are known to use their black magic, upon innocent and unsuspecting victims, for simple perverse pleasure they most often use it against someone whom crossed their path, or irritated them in any way.
But can witches be good? Yes, absolutely! We have Glinda the good witch in the "Wizard of Oz" as proof positive.
How do you avoid witches?

When a black cat crosses your path, you get bad luck. No surprise here!
